    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Saturday the temps here reached 70, so I went out on the back deck and introduced one of my little Cuban friends (Cohiba Maduro V) to a little Kentucky culture (broke the seal on my 2010 GTS) all I can say is OMG

    Good choice. I enjoy these on a regular basis. Perfect Spring flavor profile in my opinion.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    First cigar in awhile, but it was a great evening on the deck last night and a Padron 2000 and Pappy 15 made it better.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Right now I'm smoking a Montesino, a little known brand that's part of the Arturo Fuente portfolio. Connecticut shade wrapper, Dominican filler. Overall, it's a pretty mild smoke, with a relatively-short finish. Very gentle sweetness, a hint of spice. If you like Don Diego, you will want to try these. I think they're comparable price points, too. I'm pairing it with a delightful glass of Blanton's Single Barrel. Quite enjoyable.

    I'll be stepping up to an Arturo Fuente Magnum R Rosado (Vitola 58) after I finish the Montesino. I will likely pair that with something a little bolder, like Four Roses Single Barrel.

    Well, I finished the Fuente Magnum. It was definitely a different animal than the Montesino. For starters, the ring gauge was bigger, so the smoke was very big and full. Secondly, the finish was longer and spicier. The nice thing about it, though, was the very smooth draw, which is surprising in a cigar of this magnitude. I'll definitely be buying one of these again, and soon!

    La Gloria Cubano Wavell Natural ........ hard to beat this as a solid "go to" cigar... always good and always a great value.
